A top five fin­ish for tasty Lions

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -


LONDON Lions con­cluded their most suc­cess­ful sea­son in the Molten Spar­tan South Mid­lands League Di­vi­sion One with a re­sound­ing 4-1 win over Ken­tish Town.

Two goals from su­per-sub Max Kyte plus one apiece from Dean Ny­man and player-man­ager Tony Gold was just re­ward for an ex­cel­lent per­for­mance in a game where all the goals came in the sec­ond half.

Kyte broke the dead­lock af­ter l latch­ing on to a re­bound from a powe er­ful strike from Ben El­lis be­fore the v vis­i­tors lev­elled the scores from the p penalty spot.

Lions stepped up a gear in the last 2 20 min­utes with Gold ghost­ing in to head home a pre­ci­sion corner from Josh Kennet.

Ny­man popped up to reg­is­ter his 19th goal of the sea­son be­fore Kyte fin­ished the job from close range.

Gold said: “The over­all fact this sea­son is the tremen­dous col­lec­tive fight­ing spirit we have shown. It has been well doc­u­mented that the first three months of the sea­son were ex­tremely dif­fi­cult. We have played 25 games since Oc­to­ber 26 - win­ning 16 - and fin­ished the sea­son 10 points bet­ter off than last year and joint­fifth sep­a­rated on goal dif­fer­ence.

“The boys de­serve a rest now and I hope they re­turn in June re­ju­ve­nated and ex­cited about hav­ing a real crack at pro­mo­tion next sea­son.

“With the right com­mit­ment and ap­pli­ca­tion we have shown in re­cent months that we are ca­pa­ble.” Lions: Cenolli, Lam­pert, Myeroff, Bent­wood, Kennet, Sch­warz (sub: Mor­ris), Sheena (sub: Kyte), En­gle­man (sub: Gold), Ny­man, El­lis
